Israeli police arrested five Arabs from Silwan accused of being members of a local gang that has been attacking police with rocks.
According to police, the self-proclaimed Milad Ayyish Battalion threw rocks and firecrackers at Israeli police and border patrol in scores of incidents over the past year and a half, causing damage to police jeeps and patrol cars. Milad Ayyish was a 17-year-old gang-member killed during the Nakba Day riots last May.
Three of the five suspects are under 18.
